Aspirin, or acetylsalicylic acid, is a widely known drug that is used for reducing pain, fever, and inflammation. But, this pill also hides 9 other uses that you have never imagined about. Take a look at these 9 unusual uses.
1. It revitalizes your skin
Aspirin contains salicylic acid, which cleans your skin and reduces swelling, redness, and acne. Salicylic acid actually removes the excess of oil and dead cells from the pores, which is usually the principal cause of several skin problems.
Follow the instructions of this homemade recipe and treat skin-related problems effectively:
Crush 5 aspirin pills and add them to a ¼ cup of water. After that, add a teaspoon of honey and make sure you mix it well. Apply the paste on your skin and leave it to act for 10 minutes. In the end, rinse with warm water. Repeat the procedure until you get your wanted results.
2. Your flowers will last longer
Freshly cut flowers wither quickly. All you should do to make them last longer is adding a crushed aspirin pill in water and then add it to the base of the flowers.
3. It removes perspiration stains
Deodorant is a necessary product, but you probably hate it when you see those awful underarm stains, after you have used it. But, we have a perfect solution for that. Just combine a couple of crushed aspirin pills with half a cup of warm water and soak your clothes with stains in this mixture for 2-3 hours. The result is amazing!
4. It repairs your hair color
When you swim in a chlorinated pool, your hair gets dried out and it loses the quality of its color. The same happens when you spend too much hours on the sun, and during the cold winter days. But, you can bring back the color of your hair with the help of an aspirin. Dissolve 6-8 aspirin pills in a glass of warm water and rinse your hair with this liquid. Leave it to act for 10-15 minutes.
5. It dries out pimples
As we said previously, aspirin is of great help when it comes to treating problematic skin. Crush aspirin pills and mix them with water. Next step is applying the mixture on the affected areas and leave it to for a couple of minutes. Repeat the procedure until you get rid of the pimples completely.
6. Treats hard calluses on the feet
Crush 5-6 aspirin pills. Then, add half a teaspoon of water and lemon juice. Mix the ingredients well. Apply the mixture on your calluses, wrap your foot in a warm towel, and cover everything with plastic wrap. After that, lay down for about 10 minutes, and then remove the bag and towel. File the softened callus with a pumice stone.
